For what it's worth 2.4.1[023] have all worked well for suspend on my 
Thinkpad (currently can't do hibernation on this Thinkpad because I have lost 
the PS2.EXE).

I had a problem with 2.4.12 initially when I accidentally compiled the kernel 
as SMP and it broke APM terribly (almost everything caused a hang).

2.4.12 broke suspend on a friend's VAIO but 2.4.13 is working well for him 

This is all using stock kernels from ftp.kernel.org, not Debian kernels.
